Ahead of the maiden FIFA U-17 World Cup, the Chileans have not left any stone unturned to grab the FIFA U-17 title, from taking yoga classes or training in Kolkata to watching ‘Chak De! India’ to seek for motivation.

A post on their website reads, “This visit was appreciated by all the delegation, especially because the film tells the story of how a group of women hockey players emerge World Cup winners conquering all odds.”

“Chak De! India”, the movie that inspires #LaRojaSub17,” they posted on their official Twitter handle.

Anurag Chourasia, CEO of the movie’s distributor arranged a special afternoon screening two days before they headed off to an ‘unknown’ destination in India.

The coach Hernan Caputo, who is also a former Argentine goalkeeper, ensured that the team feels at home even if conditions are new.

The team also took yoga classes form Bikram Choudhury, a Kolkata-born Hatha Yoga teacher and posted a video.

They also posted a video which shows how the La Roja U-17 trained in sauna-like conditions of 35-degree centigrade temperature and a humidity of 95 percent.

Chile will open their campaign against England on October 8 in the 5 pm match at the Saltlake Stadium. They also have Iraq and Mexico in group F. The summit clash will also take place at the same stadium on October 28.
